On-Site Owner
I have the great pleasure of being the On-site Owner at The Goddard School located in Austell. I am originally from outside of Boston, Massachusetts, and moved to Atlanta after graduating from Tulane University with a Bachelors of Science in Marketing and Management to become an elementary school teacher in Atlanta Public Schools. While teaching, I earned my Masters of Education focusing in Educational Leadership from Georgia State University. I am excited to share my love of learning and passion for education with the staff at The Goddard School and with our parents and caregivers. All children are capable of learning and have the desire to learn; they just need someone to reach out and make them excited about learning. I am committed to creating a safe and healthy place for children to learn through play, through interacting with their peers and teachers; to creating a school where children are taught by educators who have a passion and a drive to guide them to achieve their dreams and succeed in life. I am happily married to my husband, Rian and we have two children; a daughter who started in the three-year-old class and graduated from Pre-K and is currently thriving in her fourth-grade class, and a son who started in the infant classroom at six-weeks-old and recent graduated from the Pre-Kindergarten program at The Goddard School and is extremely successful in his Kindergarten program. When I am not at school, I enjoy entertaining with my family and friends, reading (both children's stories and those books without pictures!), and spending time outdoors. I am looking forward to meeting each of you and to work with the students, families and staff to make The Goddard School – Austell amazing. My favorite children's book: "Good Night Moon", by: Margaret Wise Brown

What Teachers Mean to Me

Every member of the Goddard faculty has special, often extraordinary, gifts they share with their students. When a child comes home happy and can't wait to see their teacher the next day, tell us about it. Take this moment to celebrate your child's teachers!
